Alexander Patton died 25 Dec 1860, aged 80 years, and his wife, Levinia Myrick, died 11 Oct 1857, aged 85 years, per their tombstones at Hawfields Church in Alamance Co. NC. Alexander was son of Samuel Patton and wife Jane Neely McCoy. Samuel, reportedly born 1756 in VA, was son of Alexander Patton, born about 1720-1730, probably in Chester Co. PA, and died 1784 in Orange Co. NC.
The family has been well researched and two reports are available on microfilm from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. The microfilms can be ordered on loan through any LDS Family History Center.
